A good bunch of guys here,disregard the Conjurer and all will be OK.
Well with you, Coduy, Mortuus, and I we may be able to fend these guys off.
I have a varied collection right now and am looking to move a few to open some slots for some neat watches I have recently found a respect for. I started with omega and have a 42mm PO with SS and Orange croc straps that was my first New Watch, one I really like it the Omega Dynamic from the mid 90’s that I am sure will be as important as the pre moon speedy some day. I lost interest in the new Omegas once they decided to ask Rolex prices but will surely add some vintage pieces soon. Been looking at Omega or Ebel triple date moon phase. Rolex I have nothing of any real historic significant yet. Just sold my 16710 GMT last week because I don’t wear it much anymore and wanted to free up some capital for something new. I always wanted a 6263 Daytona but after trying one on it is just too small for my big ass arm so I think I will go with a 1665 Seadweller. Current Rolex 116520 Daytona, 116618 blue Sub, 116333 DJII, 116660 Seadweller, going to northern Indiana on Wed to look at a 116613 blue Sub that a dealer is holding for me with the old color bezel and if it looks gook it will probably come home with me. Not really important but I have an unnatural hatred for the black Sub and just can’t ever see myself ever wanting one. Current AP Safari (just sent to Clearwater last week for regulation it was running slow. This is funny because it was my first issue with a newer watch with any issues at all… not a good sign) and a Carbon Diver on the way. I have been looking at Nomos Glashutte and would like to see their worldtimer/GMT before I pull the trigger. The Frederique Constant Worldtimer is a serious prospect and am planning a trip to TN to have a look at one maybe next month; that thing is HOT in pictures and if it looks half as good in person its mine. Would love to have a JLC they never really interested me in the past but after looking at their history and getting to know the brand I think I need one. The Master Calendar or Master Ultra Thin Perpetual are awesome or anything with a moon phase. By the way if you have an iPhone or iPad there is a JLC app that is amazing. I think the ALS Zeitwerk Striking Time is probably the only grail I have at the moment and would gladly trade everything I have (watches and car only) for one and to tell the truth it might not be enough to get my hands on one. That’s probably a little more info than you were looking for but when I start talking about watches I just get caught up.
